8:03 am
flight due to fly from toronto karachi, diverted to stockholm sweden. you can see the picture of the passengers being evacuated here. that circle shows a couple of policemen apparently pulling one man out of the line of passengers and taking him back toward the plane. that man is the suspect. he was suspected of planning to sabotage the plane after a phone tip was called in after the flight left toronto. no explosives were found on the man. the police have been searching the plane and have found nothing on the plane so far. the man and plane did clear security before leaving. the man is being held under suspicion but, so far, has not been charged. chris. >> all right. mark phillips for us in london, thank you for that update. we appreciate it. now to the floods in the upper midwest. residents in parts of minnesota and wisconsin trying to dry out this morning but the flooding may not be over yet. heather brown of our minneapolis station wcco is live from
8:04 am
owatonna, minnesota with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. the rivers have started to go down here but the water is still here. scenes like this gas station are common across southern minnesota, the water stuck in these areas. at this point, we don't know how much all of this will cost but the governor has said he will ask for a special legislative session to figure out how to pay for it, all of this because of record rainfall in just a single day. streets turned into rivers, back yards into lakes. across the upper midwest schools flooded and bridges washed away as heavy rain led to rivers overflowing their banks. as much as 10 inches fell in 24 hours in areas of wisconsin and minnesota. the rain let up friday and some rivers are receding but many forced out of their homes can't return. power stations were flooded and roads closed. the water rose so swiftly, many people had little time to protect their homes. now, they are salvaging what
8:05 am
they can. >> a mess. everything down there is shot. >> reporter: towns like arcadia are reopening for business but many parts of the city are still off limits as officials watch the river rise. >> there's a lot of water coming down. >> reporter: more rain is expected this weekend. state officials are keeping the sandbags in place as they cast a wary eye on the raging rivers not yet shire they are out of the woods. certainly not out of the woods yet closer to minneapolis and st. paul. the storm system that caused all this is expected to cause flooding in the suburbs as early as next week which could boengsly affect many more people. chris? >> heather, thank you. for more of an update on that weather in the midwest right now let's join lonnie quinn at the weather wall for arch update on conditions they can expect. >> the wet weather is now making its push through the dakotas.
8:06 am
it will continue to push to the east but not g going to be the kind of rain like they had yesterday. we are talking about places like iran's volatile president mahmoud ahmadinejad again put his talent for stirring things up on full display in new york and president obama was drawn into the controversy. our senior white house correspondent, bill plante, has this story. good morning, bill. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. ahmadinejad doubled down on the suggestion the u.s. might have been behind the 9/11 attacks and drew an outraged response from president obama. but ahmadinejad also met with sarah shourd, the american woman who was just released from an
8:07 am
iranian prison after being held there more than a year. shourd and her mother asked ahmadinejad for the release of jane bauer and josh fattal, still held in iran. shourd called it a very positive experience. >> i'm hopeful that the president will -- will try to advocate on my fiance and my friend josh's behalf and i really feel very happy with the gesture and graciousness shown today. >> president obama in a bbc interview aimed at iran expressed outrage at ahmadinejad's claim earlier in the week at the u.n. most people in the world believe the united states was behind the september 11th attacks. the u.s. and allies walked out. >> it was offensive. it was hateful. for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable. >> reporter: at a news conference later, ahmadinejad did not back away. >> translator: don't you feel
8:08 am
that we -- the time's come to have a fact-finding committee? >> reporter: but ahmadinejad also claimed iran would consider ending uranium enrichment if sent fuel for medical reactor and ptd he is ready for respectful talks. now, ahmadinejad's suggestion that he may be ready to talk about the issue came as a surprise to u.s. officials, mainly skeptical taking a wait-and-see attitude. >> bill plante, thank you. a real eye-opener for lawmakers on capitol hill when xhom dee central's steven colbert testified a day picking beans along undocumented farm workers. listen to this. >>. of course, he's not the only comedienne taking a stand on serious political issues these days. let's talk about it with our con summitant. good morning, mark. >> good morning.
8:09 am
>> when i say he is not the only one getting in on the act. of course we've haurd from bill mahr two weeks in a row releasing videotapes of vis teen o'donnell, the republican senate candidate in delaware. what do you think is proved by all this and is bill mauer kind of doing a shock therapy on america? >> well, i think principally, bill mahr feels a bit aggrieved christine o'donnell is not recognizing the fact when she appeared on his "politically incorrect" show back in the '90s, essentially, he says he made her into what she is now, whatever that might be and wants as bit of recognition and i think he wants her to appear on his shore, which would be for ratings but i also think there is a serious purpose to this. >> mark, i want to just make sure that we get to see the bite from last night so we're going to play it. take a listen then we'll talk about the seriousness of it. >> sure. >> evolution is a myth and even darwin himself. >> evolution is a myth? >> have you ever lked at a
8:10 am
monkey? >> well then, why aren't machine keys still evolving into humans? >> it takes a long time. >> so, mark, on a serious note, what's he accomplishing with this? >> well, i think he's trying to ridicule christine o'donnell and, you know, make her look bad. the clip he released last week of her talking about her flirtation with witchcraft became a national story. and i think that testifies to the power of sattirisst, i would separate them from comediennes meaning they want to be funny at first but a serious purpose in mind versus comediennes. i think their power who have an audience unlike someone like bill mahr who can impact elections and the debate. >> would it have an impact on the would-be o'donnell voters, people who would have showed up to vote for her in the first place. >> i doubt it will have an impact on people convinced they
8:11 am
would vote for her. if you look at her level of support in a place like delaware and the audience, the people who support her, are not the type of people will look at something bill mahr, a well-known liberal, an atheist says about a conservative christian like christine o'donnell but what it will do is, perhaps, inflame the passions, at least pique the interests of those who don't know who they're going to vote for and that might influence the election. >> can the likes of a steven colbert, jn stewart and bill hahr, can they really impact the end game, what we see as the end result, will they get people to get out and vote for particular can dants? >> steven colbert and jon stewart are hosting a rally on the 30th of october in the end game of the election. if they're able to get 90 to 100,000 people out, their demographics, young voters, digs illusioned voters, the millennial generation, obama
8:12 am
voters turnoff by this election if they can get them out and interested in the election, it could prove to be a bit of a positive for the democratic party. certainly, these sattirsts are doing what democratic politicians haven't been able to do, generating interest in the campaign. >> mark, we appreciate you being with us today. >> my pleasure. >> for another look at the morning's other top stories, randall pink ston at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning. the fbi is hunting three men who staged a dramatic bank robbery in coral gables, florida. the heist began friday when the thieves vapd what they said was a bomb to a bank teller. george es they vest is in coral gables, florida. i'll get it right, george. how are you today? >> doing well. a little rainy here yesterday and also the same situation overnight. the fbi released the bank teller cleared of any suspicion.
8:13 am
hard to believe for hours yesterday though at this same bank here, as you said, he was at the center of a standoff. it had the appearance of a dangerous standoff, s.w.a.t. teams surrounding a bank, inside reports of a teller with a bomb strapped to his chest, a lone hostage in a bizarre robbery ending four hours after he was led out of the bank in handcuffs and no sign of the robbers. >> we were able to secure the bank, secure the safety of the individual and be able to deactivate the device. >> reporter: are the teller 25-year-old diego uscamayta claims it began friday after midnight when armed men broke into the apartment he shares with his parents. >> they said we have a remote, you know, triggering device. we want you to get as much money as you possibly can and bring it
8:14 am
out to us. >> reporter: police say the robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of cash in his car but questions remained. how was he able to free himself from the bomb and when did the alleged third robber get away? and there's one more question the fbi at this point will not say how the three robbers on the loose right now knew the bank teller or knew he worked at this branch. randall. >> of course, thanks a lot. in cast zik stan this morning a picture perfect return from space, a russian space capsule with an american astronaut and two cosmonauts came down under a huge parachute. the capsule kicking up a cloud of dust as it landed. the three crew members spent more than six months on the international space station. technical problems delayed their homecoming by one day. for the second time in a month a judge ruled the don't ask, don't tell policy on gays in the u.s. military is unconstitutional. a federal judge in tacoma

[car horn honks] our outback always gets us there... ... sometimes it just takes us a little longer to get back. ♪ ves gays tiff reporter bob woodward's new book is behind the scenes sxloe say detailing the obama administration's handling of the war in afghanistan. the book is making headlines with explosive revelations. joining us is cbs news consultant and presidential historian douglas brinkley.
8:20 am
good to have you with us this morning. >> good morning. >> so, what gets woodward this kind of access. >> well, his track record. he's the famous journalist part of the team with carl bernstein who broke the watergate story and actually led to richard nixon being brought down. he's a deep washington insider. he lives there. he has a rolodex, where he doesn't just know senators and congressmen and people at the pentagon but has their cell numbers, a good gum-shoe reporter, a hard worker and historic figure. i would put him as one of the two or three most influential journalists of the 20th century and turns out whenever he has one of these books come out it makes immediate news >> of course, big focus in this one is the war in afghanistan. president obama is quoted in the book as saying i can't let this be a war without end and i can't lose the whole democratic party. that's a quote from obama's war in woodward's book you see there on your screen.
8:21 am
douglas, tell me, what's new about this, what new revelations can we take away from the statement? >> well, there's a lot. i mean, the port trat that's being painted by bob woodward is of a president who wants out of afghanistan. he started to get us out of iraq and would like to get us out of of afghanistan sees these as losing propositions in many ways right now. but these were bushes wars and it takes some time. the book is about the infighting if you like the voe biden worried about afghanistan and thinks we might have to extricate ourselves and troops from them -- >> of course, were, were he has from general david petraeus, as well. he says i don't think you win this war. i think you keep fighting. >> and the problem with those kind of quotes when you just extract them from this book, how do you want to be the young person who goes over to fight in
8:22 am
afghanistan because you are getting ready to extract yourself from there? we are losing a lot of soldiers. i think this book has a corrosive effect. some say it might be helpful but can't be great for the morale of the troops seeing they are fighting in afghanistan at that time when most of the leaders in the white house and pentagon don't think what they are doing is winnable in any way. >> also the president is quoted saying we can absorb a terrorist attack. the administration is happy with the representation of obama in this book. >> that particular line has not bothered me at all that part of it. i think the president is simply talking about a terrorist attack is always a possibility and we overcalm 9/11 and our country is so great we'll overcome anything. president obama comes off very well in the book when he is being interviewed it is some of the snide comments of other

8:26 am
in a negative light but he will not sit down and talk you with and officially authorize it with him. does that bother you at all. >> i spent a year trying to talk to him and -- almost like waiting for goodeau. i wish he had. a lot of people field betrayed by hip and in the end he decided not to. i would have loved if he had talked to me but i think it was a very fair portrayal. overall, the book and movie actually come out in a very positive way. >> what do you think about the donation to the new york public school system $100 million right on the tip of the premiere right there, what about the timing? >> it's wonderful for him to give that kind of money to the schools. any time a school system gets $100 million it's a wonderful thing g. for mark, he's a kid who has never really cared about money. it's never been a big part about why he did anything. to give away what really is a significant amount is really

8:33 am
jim, good morning. good to talk with you this morning. >> good morning, chris. how are you. >> how unusual was it for what we saw yesterday, the judge remanher to jail immediately and hours later she's out on $300,000 bail? >> i could never have imagined what the last 24 hours would bring. those of us in court believed, as did the second judge, that lindsay lohan was entitled to bail, since the violation was for a misdemeanor. but this judge was trying to sandy message because he knew she would get out right away because of jail overcrowding in california and basically didn't sent her, he held her until a hearing but then surprisingly a second judge says, no, you're entitled to bail. look, i think that michael lohan was right, his daughter needs help. she has failed one drug test. there are now new conditions. but, she failed this drug test after being out for only three weeks and she was in rehab and jail before. a lot of people are very concerned because it appears she has quite a problem.
8:34 am
>> what would you recommend, what do you think the next step is? jail is not working, rehab is not working. i know michael wants her to go right for rehab rather than jail saying that doesn't work for anyone, not that he's the expert in all. this but what do you think they will do? >> honestly i think lindsay lohan should go to rehab but not out in 14 days. where you are there for 30, 60, whatever is deemed appropriate. i think she needs to address this problem head on. the dirty drug test was for cocaine, which was in the even a drug she was suspected of taking. so, she's clearly hanging out with the wrong people. you know, a friend of mine's 16-year-old daughter asked her mom this morning do you think lindsay lohan will reach the age of 30. what a sad question for this young girl to look at this starlet and wonder, i think a lot of us are wondering. >> you were in the courtroom yesterday. what was the reaction? describe the look on her face or her attorney's face when the judge said, you know what, you're going to jail right now.
8:35 am
>> lindsay lohan came in looking very calm, smiling. i was sitting about 10 feet away from her. she was talking to her mom behind sher smiling, gave her mom a thumbs-up before the judge walked in. even her attorney didn't see this coming. originally the hearing was set for october 22nd. her attorney said how about moving it to the 29th. the judge said i think injure client wants a shorter hearing and that was our first indication. everyone was blind-sided about this decision. >> -- is there any chance that all parties can come together for the benefit of this girl so she at least has a fighting chance? i don't think anybody out there thinks she will make it under these given circumstances? >> well, the reality is i think judge fox yesterday was trying to do what her family can't, that is put her on a road to recovery and use some tough love. and, apparently, her mother is not able to get her daughter to
8:36 am
do the right thing. her father is not really close enough with her to do that. somebody is going to have to step in. it's a shame it would have to be the legal system, but clearly this girl is not choosing the right people to hang around with and needs help. >> we'll see in october whether it's back to jail or forced rehab for a couple of months. thanks so much. good talking with you this morning. >> my pleasure. now, to lonnie with another check of the weather for us. hi, listenny. >> good morning to you chris, and everybody. would somebody please yodel around here? the german-american parade, quickly who is the grand marshal in new york? >> there are two dr. ruth and dr. muelle, who is actually the ceo of hoeferhauser beer. >> there you go. the tropics are active, matthew is soaking central america. lisa is a hurricane, cat 1 but no threat to land. honduras and nicaragua the

8:41 am
prescription drug abuse among teens and the d.e.a.'s first ever nationwide takeback from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 4,000 locations around the cannot tree anyone can turn in old, unused or excess prescription drugs in their home, no questions asked. our website has received a number of questions about the initiative, including just where the locations are. joining us to answer your many questions dea special agent in charge john gilbride and our other own dr. jennifer ashton. good to see both of you. >> good morning. >> what is it about this and why is the dea doing it now. >> well, when you look at the numbers, it's staggering in terms of the number of people that are abusing prescription drugs. seven million people abuse prescription drugs a 13% increase in just one year. when you look at the number of teenagers that are abusing prescription drugs, it's frightening. 2500 teens, on average, every
8:42 am
day use prescription drugs to get high for the very first time. so, operation takeback is a chance to get those drugs out of the medicine cabinet where they're just sitting there waiting to be abused. >> jen, as a doctor, how rampant is the abuse that you see in your own office and what is the seriousness of it? because i think a lot of people miss that point this all of this. >> well, i think we don't really know how rampant it is. those numbers we just saw are just really estimates and the fear in medicine, clinical medicine, this key even be worse. i think a lot of people fall in the habit of use, abuse and dependence on prescription medications lulled into a false sense of security if a doctor prescribed them they must be safer than recreational street drugs. we know that is not true. >> given the size of this problem, the fact it may even be bigger, is there something doctors should be doing, in your opinion, differently? >> well, i think there two things, rebecca. the first thing doctors should use treating a patient with chronic pain, a lot are
8:43 am
prescription narcotics for pain syndromes we're taught in medical school, the right dose is the dose that works. so many doctors are afraid of undertreating because they don't want to make the patient into an ad dick. what it does a lot of times drives that patient to other doctors to get more and more of the same class of medications and then they can fall into a habit of dependence and abuse. the other thing doctors can do, rebecca, a new urine test available for doctors that can dleniate what specific types of drugs a patient is taking, it comes out in their urine. before we would take patients taking opioid narcotics. now, a doctor who suspects a patient may have drug abuse problem can actually see how many drugs that patient is taking and know if that patient is in trouble so we can -- >> information. >> absolutely. >> what other partners is the dea working with to get this message out and put an end to

8:48 am
welcome back. last weekend an evening out for an atlanta mother ashlea collier turned tragic when she left her 2-year-old daughter with a babysitter 11 years old. when she came home the baby was unconscious and later died at the hospital. the sitter told police ashlea's little girl fell off the beth but the corner ruled otherwise, death by blunt force trauma. this week she was charged with felony murder and cruelty to children. how, as a parent can you protect your child from this horrific story.
8:49 am
joining us to talk about it is robi ludwig, ph.d.. getting back to this story just a moment. astra gic as it, is nuts and bolts of the argument you've left a 2-year-old with an 11-year-old. >> right. >> an 11-year-old to me, i think anyone out there is way too young. >> especially if you don't know the 11-year-old. there are some parents will say, you know, an 11-year-old who is mature and has done it before, well that might be okay in certain situations. but, if you don't know the 11-year-old and there's no adult supervising, that is a prescription for disaster, especially when a kid is so young. when they're 2 and younger, you really need a more mature personality to watch that child. >> in the defense the mother in that case the story right now she thought an adult was going to be present at the time. this was not the case. >> that's right. >> talk to parents now watching and fearing something like this would happen and go over tips. first is age, you say an age minimum should be met.
8:50 am
>> i would go with 14 years old and older and, of course, knowing that that 14-year-old has had some experience and seems mature and it's a job that they want to do. and, also, you need to really check around with other parents to hear what the reputation is for that child. so, just don't go only on age but i think that's a good barometer. >> and questions, there are a number of questions. you have to ask the what-if questions with a lot of kids. >> you do. you do. when you think about it, when you're hiring for a job, don't you ask specific questions about the person that you're hiring? well, it's no different when you are looking for somebody to watch your child. you want to ask them, how do they handle discipline, how would they handle it if your child is resisting going to bed? how would you handle it if the child is crying and you want to hear, you know, how strict are they, do they have good coping skills, are they somewhat flexible? >> also, references like anything else, whether a housekeeper, a nanny, no matter what, you have to check
8:51 am
references. >> right. you don't want to just say when you call them, hey, you did like this babysitter, you want to find out if the person was responsible, did the person show up on time, did the chin really like this babysitter and look forward to them coming? so, you really want to get a whole picture, a dlee dimensional picture who the babysitter is. >> one idea is a babysitter audition. what exactly is that? >> well, i guess that's how you see how the babysitter is around your child. hopefully when you are looking if a babysitter you have that time factor to maybe include them and observe them with your children. a lot, too, is a personality mix, do they work well in your home. >> the other thing is key, i know my folks did this when i was a kid, leave a phone list, have emergency numbers right. >> there well, yeah. exactly, you want to leave your number. maybe you want a neighbor who lives nearby, you want a physician and, also, worst-case scenario, the police and fire department so this person really has an idea that there is a backup if they are feeling stressed out >> no one knows a child better
8:52 am
than the parents of that child. >> right. >> if you've got a couple of things you know mary jane likes to cry or go to bed watching certain television shows. >> right, you are the expert on your child. if you know the child will try to get over at bedtime maybe you want to warn the babysitter so the babysitter is mentally prepared and doesn't feel off guard. >> yeah. but definitely you've got to watch out. >> you have to be very careful. and then, of course, there are organizations you can go to if you want to a place for look for somebody who is branded and checked out thoroughly. >> like carfax. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> good to talk with you this morning. >> we'll be right back. you are watching "the early show" on cbs. when i was seventeen, i was not good to my skin.
